On Clear out the shelter days here in Maine hubby decided I needed a new kitten. I got a dog, Atlas, he turned into a daddy’s boy, it’s been a year since I lost my beautiful Myah so he said it’s time. After a couple places we were about to leave when he started to play with this little girl. Now you need a kitty young before age of 1 to ensure the dog and cat can become friends, I insist on a female, and I wanted a white and or grey one. The shelter brought her out, 4 years old and black. I pointed out the age and the worker and my husband had a quick talk about her being fine with dogs and next thing I know we are adopting her!! Ummmmm, now wait a minute! I thought I was getting a new friend, not my husband!! I have adapted and she is friendly and crazy funny. She does ok with the dog, sometimes rubbing against him and freaking him out, other times she swats at him and hisses. Woman. Lol I guess she can stay.
Reading a recent post from someone I admire made me realize I had not posted about my dog since we adopted him. Atlas was a rescue from Florida, very small and long with a head too big for his body when we met him, but he was our kind of crazy, so he became one of us. Bassadors are half Bassett hound and half Labrador, so short legs, long body! Bassett hounds are the most stubborn to train and he is almost two and still chews everything!!!He hates his nails being cut so has ripped one pair of my bed sheets running around going crazy and my hardwood floors have suffered the most!
At the same time with all the stress comes the love and unconditional friendship, he makes me feel safe when my husband is away, he has helped me with getting outside more and being able to leave the house easier on my own. He is ours and we may never be done with his training but he wants to learn and he seems happy.
My heart is on fire with grief, guilt is taking over, my responsibility to my loved ones who counted on me has been betrayed. I opened the door, I let my beautiful girl outside at night and then left her out side when I went to bed. I killed my best friend. My precious girl, she was an angel, she was the most well behaved animal I have even had the pleasure of meeting. She didn’t get up on things or rip things, she never ever not used her litter box. She was very simple and happy. She deserved so much better. She was only 7. I can not forgive God anymore, he has taken so much from me, I don’t need to be stronger! I don’t need to endure anymore great pain! I have had so much pain in my life. I mean, cmon, my Adrenal Glands were so over used by the time I hit my 20 that they quit at 22! Not deformed or any other reason, they were just exhausted! I understand a lot of the things that have happened in my life and I even understand the reason behind them and I did need to learn to be stronger and I was. But I have lived through it, I beat the pain, I saved myself and my kids from all the abuse and I made myself into the person I am now. I beat cancer. I have over come and have my rewards for my troubles. I have the most perfect man for me that could ever be, we have our quirky house, and we have our boys. Yes, his ex is still mentally and emotionally abusing his two and my grandkids are in a horrible situation but we are dealing, Day by day. How could anyone possibly thing I didn’t still need her! How could anyone think I could just get up and move on with out my shadow? She has been next to me every day since she could walk. She was my sunshine, my happiness and my baby.

August 1st I rushed my dog to the emergency hospital in Middleton Wisconsin. Got him in there they took an x-ray, came back told me it was bloat. I told them well fix him basically. They told me their policy is money up front before they can proceed. No no no….I want you to get him in there please he’s my baby!
We need 3000.00 before we can proceed. I told them I can get if but he’s sleeping he’s a truck driver and he’s not answering the phone. PLEASE GET HIM IN THERE. Nope…I had to choose let him suffer,or put him to sleep. That is ridiculous he was everything to me….my constant companion( Dr.orders) I have ptsd and agoraphobia.. he was Akc registered Great Dane (blue) champion bloodlines….and they took him from me.
They me owed and meowed, open the window!! Ok, they just stop. One turns and looks at me like yyyyyyyyyy????? I didn’t do it. Lol
I miss her so much
She was the best decision I ever made,
My best friend, my security , my nightlight in the dark,
The hardest goodbye I have ever had to endure
Never out of my heart or out of my thoughts
My little black beauty
